I never said I disagreed. I did point out that he was now redundant and not that useful anymore.

What's wrong with pointing something good a guy did? When you comes close to retiring will you want people to only remember that last 6 months when you have had slowed down, or would you like them to remember some of the better things you did in your job?

Begin should be playing with Lapierre - they do well together.

I would bench D'agnosti and Pacioretty - they dont have Begin's heart and attention to Defense.

Laraque was not dressed for the Ottawa game and it was pretty chippy, Josh Georges had to fight a guy, we need Laraque even if he does not get on the ice , just dressed and ready to go does the trick.

i would personally prefer to see begin play before laraque, and even before dandy in some games. but i beleive that Begin will be back playing in the playoffs!

Stewart is stealing some time right now, but i think it is only temporary to see what he can offer, give him a chance. Maybe Gainey and co want to rest begin and keep him ready for the playoffs, where he can turn it to the max!

its heartbreaking for him to see Dandy in front of him i'm sure some team would welcome him....for a 5th rounder or something maybe a 4 th.....is value will never be higher then right know
What do you guys think ?

Dandy is a better player then Begin and Dandy doesn't take all those stupid penalties that Begin takes. That is why Begin sits and Dandy plays.

I wouldn't bench Paccioretty because he plays with heart and lays the body just as much as Bégin. However, I don't think I'd keep Dagger if it was to play on the 4th line which I think Bégin is better suited to play on anyway.

Been a big fan of exactly what he brings to the team, passion, loyalty, intensity, at times very good pk skills, great hitting and also a great PR guy for the team. I DO, however remember wanting to kill him twice after those infamous idiotic penalties (in different years) that cost us a lot more than he ever achieved for us (unfortunate, but true).

I don't think he's completely done though. I reallly don't see Chipchura being the great defensive talent we thought he was and either way, look who he's playing with, not a good match for him, but great for Steve. I am waiting for the arrival of Chipper, but for now, please give Begin one more chance. Once Tangs and Lats are back then of course forget it.

Depends on who stays next year, but at a reasonable price, I wouldn't mind that we keep Bégin. I'm still not sold on both Chipchura and Stewart...

Stewart has good size, speed and intensity, but ECHL level hockey sense. And Chipchura...meh...
